Salvation centers on a staggering discovery: an enormous asteroid is just six months away from colliding with Earth. Without alerting the public, MIT grad student Liam Cole and tech billionaire Darius Tanz team up to save humanity from this impending apocalypse. Keeping it secret will complicate life for Liam and those closest to him. Meanwhile, the government has its own approach. Deputy Secretary of Defense Harris Edwards has been tasked with running a top-secret plan to deflect the asteroid.
CBS announced this evening that freshman thriller Salvation has been renewed for a second season. The good news comes after a 13-episode summer run that, while only garnering so-so ratings, did draw fairly consistent viewership for the network on Wednesday nights.
The series follows the events following the discovery of an enormous asteroid that is only six months away from colliding with Earth. An MIT grad student teams up with a tech billionaire to try to save humanity from the potentially-catastrophic event.
Another 13 episodes have been ordered for Season 2 of Salvation, which will return in the summer of 2018.
